Share stock between products/variations using attributes.
Our plugin allows you to create stock based on global product attributes. A simple feature in concept, yet extremely versatile, fulfilling a wide range of use cases.
Easily track and manage shared product stock, variable stock, linked stock, product addons, product combos, parts, measurements, ingredients, and much more!
Why is this needed?
Let’s say you have an online store that sells custom printed t-shirts, with each t-shirt print listed as a product on your site. Simple enough, right?
Not exactly… Since WooCommerce can only track stock at the product level, there’s no way to keep track of the total number of blank t-shirts you have in stock between each of your products.
Your stock levels would quickly go out of sync and your customers would be able to purchase 10 different prints even if you only have one t-shirt left in stock!
Ok you got me. What can we do about it?
With WooCommerce Attribute Stock you can easily share stock between any number of products or variations. This is achieved by managing stock based on product attributes, making it extremely flexible while still familiar and easy to use.
Shared stock levels are accurately tracked, available stock is displayed to customers, and over-purchasing is prevented.
See the examples section below for more advanced stock setups made possible with attribute stock.
Manage stock at the attribute level. Share stock between all products/variations with one or more assigned attributes.
Limit product stock
Display the effective product stock available on the frontend and prevent over-purchasing.
Specify the amount of stock reduced per purchase (including decimal values). Useful for measurements, weights, packs, lengths, etc.
Admin page for easy management of attribute stock items. Set SKUs, internal notes, low stock threshold, product filters, and more.
Keep track of your attribute stock with WooCommerce stock reports.
Low stock emails
Receive email notifications for low stock and out of stock attributes.
Manage your attribute stock from external software with our fully integrated WooCommerce REST API endpoint.
Works with 99% of other plugins, such as variation swatches, POS systems, Subscriptions, Product Bundles, Cart Stock Reducer, WP-Lister, WPML, Polylang, etc.
Almost anything that can’t already be configured can be added or changed with actions and filters.
With attribute-level stock it’s possible to track variable stock (different amounts per item). Let’s say your shop sells Tea by the gram. Simply set your total stock on an attribute Tea and add terms such as 25g, 50g, 100g, etc. By setting a quantity multiplier, each deducts the respective amount from your total stock. This works the same for lengths, quantities, or combo packs.
Multiple attributes per stock item can also be managed. Imagine you sold necklace pendants with various chains. Each chain has a type and a length. With attribute stock you can accurately track multiple chain inventories shared between each of your pendants and ensure items are not over-purchased.
Attribute stock can be used in many more cases. For example, event tickets can be sold with a limited number of seats, days, or both. Different levels of tickets can be sold as separate products while sharing one or more central stock pools.
